12. I agree.


Most Republicans don't know enough about the Hispanic community to understand that Cubans and other nationalities don't have a lot of political cohesion because the Cubans have never cared much about illegal immigration problems and tend to look down on Mexican and Central Americans.

Jeb is the only one that makes it close, and he is good. He is the only one that comes close to unifying the party. I am not even sure if Christie is even aware of the fact that he is there for the 'framing' effect. There will be Christie 'on the left' and Cruz on the far right and they will make Bush look 'moderate'.

He keeps the base intact, gives them a chance in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, which no one else does.

Personally I hope that it is anybody but Jeb.

I also hope that Julian Castro is on the ticket as Veep.
